The name Devin is a boy's name of Irish origin meaning "poet". Devin is ranked #331 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Occupational Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Heaven Hell Purgatory -- GIRLS".
From the experts:
Devilishly handsome, Devin arrived as Kevin was moving out. Not to be confused (though it often is) with the English place-name Devon. While both Devin and Devon are flagging somewhat for boys, the names have dropped out of the Top 1000 for girls, making it more a masculine and less a unisex name these days.
